ANALYSIS OF CLOUD COMPUTING IN OPEN SOURCE PLATFORM

Fui Fui Wong, Cheng Xiang Tan

Abstract

There is an increasing interest in the use of open source cloud computing infrastructure platform by larger companies, academic researchers, scientists and service providers that can tailor the platform for specific users. The open source cloud computing has joined the mainstream where it is starting to offer companies a lot of flexibility and cost savings to combine public and private clouds. These tools could let companies to build and customize their own computing clouds to work alongside with more powerful commercial solutions. To understand these issues, this paper outlines an analysis study of open source cloud computing platform using six of the most advanced platforms (Eucalyptus, OpenNebula, Nimbus, abiCloud, openQRM and Xen Cloud Platform) in order to gauge whether its potential opportunities could outweigh their possible drawbacks.
